The NGC Universal ID is a four digit alphanumeric that groups coins based on a unique combination of date, mintmark, denomination and striking process (MS, PF, or SP). These IDs are a simple organization of all coins prior to variety attribution and grading.
Even though the 1905 eagle, with its mintage of 200,992 coins is considered a common date, it is much more difficult to locate than some of the true common dates, such as the 1901 or 1901-S. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth comment in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins 1795-1833: 'The 1905 eagle is one of the more common 'tough' dates of the 20th century, meaning that it is fairly easy to obtain, but it is not nearly as plentiful as dates such as 1901, 1901-S, and 1907. As is typical for coins of this period, low-end Uncirculated coins rule the day, whereas gem examples are rare.'
